I was hoping this could be a casual group for practising visual artists, not a guild or formalized society. We could meet once a week in an open studio. During the open studio, we can bring new projects, existing projects to work on, and just create in a collaborative, positive, creative environment. Once a month, artists could bring in work for a critique from fellow artists; nothing painful, but a positive way to collaborate, be inspired by different ideas, and grow from the opportunity and experience.
As of yet, this is all open for discussion. I think that together we can really create some great things; I would like to know if there are other people interested in this kind of thing, we could possibly make this a reality.
